Schuyler County Coalition on Underage Drinking and Drugs (SCCUDD)’s Opioid/Over the Counter Coordinating VISTA:June 2018-Jun 2019
This VISTA Opioid Project focuses on addressing the opioid crisis in Schuyler County by placing a VISTA member to organize and support coalition work surrounding substance abuse and the opioid epidemic. The programming treats opioid addiction and recovery as a health issue and fits into the Corporation for National and Community Service’s Healthy Futures focus area. The programming emphasizes prevention, intervention, and treatment. The VISTA will work with SCPH and Executive Committee to expand the influence and effectiveness of the coalition; lead collaborative resource development efforts, with a target of $10,000 new funding; and create new materials for development, communications, and assessment (including social media and PowerPoint presentations for public education purposes, a monthly e-newsletter, and referral linkages between community organizations and drug addiction treatment services).
